Potential

By AG

My potential is to be successful
To be a better father
To not be bothered what other people say about me
To always keep my mind free
Free of insecurities
Free to spread my wings
Free to sing
My potential is to be free
To be the Real Me
To work for a successful company
To pay bills to make ends meet
My potential is beyond what I now see
Prison cells and white concrete
To make it back to the streets
My potential is to be a normal American
To open doors to inner city kids
Suffering from poverty
That’s my potential

In Her Eyes

I see the potential for forever
Subtle glimpses of lifetimes spent together

Along with passion and compassion
And if I happen to be the vaguest question
She’s the specified answer
I see a deep ocean full of love
That’s barely been touched
And I just want to go deep sea diving
Giving her all of me
In exchange for us
Her beauty goes without saying
My soul yearns for more
Her eyes tell me likewise
And my soul is assured
I see the potential of forever
But if we ever part ways
I’ll always remember the power and potential
That live in her gaze
